Trek Fuel 70

Bought a new bike today.

2006 Trek Fuel 70

Went in to look at some shoes and bought a Trek Fuel 70 with full suspension. What got me was 2006’s black edition, since my road bike is black also, I thought they would make a really nice pair.

Took it out this afternoon and the full suspension does make a difference in ride. I can feel the extra speed on flat terrain and it seems stronger going downhill, more in control. It’s heavier than the Moab but the upgrades in suspension and disk brakes was worth it.

The Moab is passed down, let’s see who jumps on it first and decides to draft me for a day.

Rode for 9.48 miles, average speed was 10.9 mph.
